As Salamu Alaykum

All three لم، لا و لن seem to negate something, such as 'no' or 'not' in the English language. What is the difference between them?

Salam,

لن means: will never (for actions happen in the future)
لم: means: didn't (negates actions in the past)
لا: means: it has got more than a meaning, so its funcion in the sentence depends upon the intended meaning either: 1) Don't OR 2) don't/doesn't
